May I ask a favor?? Can you help me get to the top 25 of the Grammy Amplifer contest? Just click, and play my song! Soooo simple, even a mouse can do it...oh wait, a mouse DOES do it! or, your fingertip!
The top 25 artists get to record with a Grammy winning Producer, make a major music video or open on tour for a major artist. I'd LOVE your support!!!

His sound is a unique combination of his parents’ influences of 30s and 40s lyrical standards and his own passion for progressive rock, with some jazz/funk thrown in for good measure.

Bob Ludwig - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Of all of the wonderful things that have happened with sharing "NEXT." with the world, few have been more gratifying than this note we received last week from Bob Ludwig, one of the world's greatest mastering engineers:

"We were shooting-out some very high-end digital to analog converters today.
We played a lot of music, but the music that exposed the differences the most was your "Next" record, it sounds crazy awesome!!
You all did SUCH a great job on it. I'm so glad you made it and I hope I get to work on the next "next"!!

Warmest regards,
Bob

On behalf of my co-producers Will Will Ackerman and Tom Eaton, and myself, we couldn't be more proud.
These words, about "NEXT.", from THIS man, who has mastered some of the greatest music, EVER, mean SOOOO much.

Issue # 155 reviews | Improvijazzation Nation

I am THRILLED to see this review of NEXT from Dick Metcalf:

Jeff Oster – NEXT: There’s truly a good reason why Jeff’s “Surrender” album (issue # 118) was chosen as a “PICK” for that issue… the one-sheet with this new release declares that his trumpet/flugelhorn is a cross betwixt Miles & Pink Floyd… though that sounds like an odd comparison – nothing could be more accurate.

As I listen to the beauty emanating from the title track, “Next“, I can’t help but be “transported” into “the zone”… I can tell you right now, you simply MUST listen to this entire set with your headphones on… no interruptions, only the calming tranquility that a true artist can evoke. “Turn Left At San Pancho” is slightly more upbeat, and will melt the heartstrings of any true jazz lover… every note is “right on” the mark, folks!

A part of this excellence may be that Will Ackerman co-produced it, but when you listen to Jeff’s mastery on my personal favorite of the dozen tracks, the 4:04 “Ibiza Sunrise“, you’ll know that the tunes on this CD will stay on your playlists – FOREVER!

I give Jeff a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) of (a perfect) 5.00 – meaning that this outing also receives another “PICK” for “best trumpet/flugelhorn” album of this issue.

next (feat. Nile Rodgers), by Jeff Oster

Here's the title track from my new album "NEXT."

Featuring some sweet guitar from Chic's Nile Rodgers, along with the ever smooth and tasty Chuck Rainey on bass, and the iconic shuffle of Bernard "Pretty" Purdie, Jeff's horn has no place to go but UP.

And when you add the tasty guitar stylings of Berklee's Scott Tarulli and the warm and rich keyboards of Tom Eaton, the title track is the PERFECT recipe for the Ambient New Age Funk that follows.

Listen to what's NEXT!
